So the Indy Marathon just finished up.  But it got me thinking.  Somebody should explain to WG that a marathon is 26 miles.  So having an event that only has 25 tasks make little sense.  Listen, I'm not just saying this because I finished 1 short of completion.  Not at all.  Nope.  So WG next marathon should have 26 tasks.  It only makes sense

There were 26 tasks and you had to do at least 21 to get the indy.

Or alternatively, they could not time gate these events just to force players to play daily.....:Smile_teethhappy:

THIS! It's a bad idea to have them locked like that. If you go on vacation (like many Americans do during the summer) then you completely miss out on getting the ship.

Didn't want it didn't care, but you're exactly right. People have lives, WG seems determined lately to make players choose between life and a game....

They really want you to buy the ship, It had it's own missions for crates.

Shut it - Hamsters aren't allowed to talk and thinking is counterproductive!

And those crates were just as crappy as the mission crates - close to zero chance of winning mission for a ship ….

What they really wanted is for you to buy the ones in premium store, not knowing that they sucked too lol

This weekend task 25 and 26 were ongoing. You likely finished task 26 first.

26 was a lot easier than 25, I didn't even try to accomplish 25 but did finish 26 for the completion and ~11 million credits, a captain, and a port slot.

The words "marathon" and "fun" don't go together - sorry to inform :)

A marathon is 26.2 miles so 26 would still be wrong.  A marathon is also a foot race so that doesn't really make any sense.  A marathon is define as being "A long-lasting or difficult task or operation of a specified kind" and in the end that seems to be what they are getting at.  And I suspect we all got that.
